I just watched all the coverage on TNT and Sportscenter. They all raved about Luka being the best player on the court, which is fine. But no one talked about the defense. The numbers Luka put up are pretty normal. No one is shocked to see him score 27 in a half. The number they should have been talking about is the 27 they held the Sun to in a half.

The Suns starters couldn't hit a shot because they were hardly ever open. And if they were open, they rushed the shot because they knew the Mavs swarming D was coming. None of that makes great highlights for TV. But it is why the Mavs won, and its what Steve Kerr is game planning against right now. Amazing that not a single pundit made that point on TV.
